Taste Test Tuesday – Stuffed French Toast

People have been begging me for this recipe since I started this blog. It’s another meal I got from Erin over at $5 dinners. (If you haven’t already, you should go out and buy her cookbook!)

Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast


Ingredients
10 eggs
1 cup milk
1/8 cup favorite syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
about 12 thin slices of French bread
2 “spotty” bananas
4 oz cream cheese
Directions
1. In large bowl, whisk eggs and milk. Whisk in syrup and cinnamon.

2. In KitchenAid or using hand mixer, blend bananas and cream cheese until smooth and creamy. (I used my magic bullet the last time I made this and it made it creamier and easier to spread and also distributed the banana more evenly.)

3. In 8×8 baking dish, pour about 1/2 cup of egg mixture into the bottom of the dish, just enough to cover the bottom. Place bread on top of egg mixture to cover as much of the dish as possible.

4. Spread banana/cream cheese over the top of the bread. Cover with a more bread slices.

5. Pour the remaining egg/milk mixture over the top of the bread and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours, but all day or overnight would be ideal!

6. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. (I have a really old, crappy oven so it normally takes closer to 50 minutes for it to completely set up for me.)

Another tip from Erin: Use rice bread and rice milk for the dish if you are GFCF. And omit cream cheese…will taste great with just the bananas!

One thing I like about this recipe is I buy one loaf of french bread for less than $2 and I get garlic bread/croutons and to make the stuffed french toast twice out of one loaf.  This week I plan on using my loaf to make French Onion Soup, Stuffed French Toast and some Garlic Bread to go with my chicken alfredo. Plus whatever garlic bread is leftover I will cut up to make croutons. YUM!
